From Wimba Live Classroom to Blackboard Collaborate
Since 2009, Live Classroom has been a feature in MUOnLine. In July 2010, Blackboard purchased Wimba and Elluminate, another competing web conferencing platform. Because of this merger, Blackboard has created a new set of tools called Collaborate. Blackboard Collaborate™ gives you the functionality you need in a 21st century teaching and learning environment, such as two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, application and desktop sharing, rich media, breakout rooms, and session recording. Educators and students can engage as if they were in a traditional classroom, with as good as, or even better, outcomes. To view demos of Collaborate, user guides, and best practices, please view our migration website.
